Diamantakis winery was founded in 2007 by the family members of Nikolaos G. Diamantakis: Ioannis, Michalis and Zacharias. The first two ones are third-generation vine-growers who have extensive experience in viticulture and are in charge of the winerys vineyards; whereas Zacharias, having studied oenology, is involved in the process of winemaking and promoting the wine. It is located southwest of the city of Heraklion in the heart of the province Malevizi, outside the village of Kato Asites.
The love and passion of Diamantakis family for high quality wine, their long tradition in viticulture and the 70 acres of private owned land, was the motivation to create a small winery in the area. The grape varieties cultivated are Greek, local and international. During the spring 2010, other 25 acres of land are planted and arranged in terraces.
Familys purpose is the production of fine wines which can be blended harmoniously with the unique macroclimate of the area. The exploitation of the local grape varieties such as Vidiano, Liatiko and Mandilari, is the main target of Diamantakis family. Τhey strongly believe in the potential and ability of the local varieties to give exceptional wines.
